i added a rib to supplement the stiffness of claudio del valle's excellent thumbpick design, and also rounded some of the corners...
i also created a simple finger pick, which i left a bit thick to accommodate a healthy amount of sanding which i think is key to minimizing those "swipe" sounds on the ol' strings....? hopefully i left the poly's simple enough so that it's still easy to tweak for your own purposes!
by unpopular demand, a short video of them in action:
for the thumb pick, i went with medium settings, .2 layer height on my rep2, with sanding to get rid of the ridges on the "picking surface".
not quite sure what is ideal for the finger picks since on my rep2 v7 firmware, smaller layer settings tend to create a blob at the end of the pick which requires filing/sanding. you can avoid the "blob" a bit on larger layer heights (like the default medium setting of .27) for some reason, but regardless the finger picks will need a lot of sanding to get rid of that "swiping sound".
PS for the finger picks, it boosts playability alot to really file away at that inside edge (inside meaning the side where your finger is), at an angle nearly parallel to the z-axis of the pick to get rid of any sort of "hook feeling" on the strings.
